Pakistan’s top human rights watchdog on Friday expressed “alarm and disappointment” over a declaration by the Council of Islamic Ideology that DNA tests are not acceptable as primary evidence in determining rape cases. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan described the Council’s decision as “regressive” and “unkind to rape victims”. In a statement, the Commission said: In these circumstances, it would be foolish to not depend on all the evidence that is available, especially something as incontrovertible as DNA test results,” the statement said. The Council of Islamic Ideology, a constitutional body that advises the Pakistan government, announced on Wednesday that DNA tests cannot be used as primary evidence in rape cases. DNA can be used as secondary or supporting evidence in rape cases, the Council ruled. Refuting its importance and much more crucially, suggesting that it is made inadmissible as primary evidence helps the rapist and no one else,” the HRCP said.
Polygyny in Islam
Pointing out that the world has changed a great deal during that period, his interviewer asked him whether his understanding of the world had changed over time, and if so, what have been the most catalytic events in altering his perspective about politics. And, most importantly, what can one reasonably forecast with regard to the future of Islam and the Islamic world, particularly in view of what appears to be the twilight of the empire age and the dawn of a digital era, in the midst of a global moral vacuum and spiritual influx?
The nations are about to flock against you [the Muslims] from every horizon, just as hungry people flock to a kettle. O Messenger of Allah, will we be few on that day? No, you will be many in number, but you will be scum, like the scum of a flash-flood, without any weight, since fear will be removed from the hearts of your enemies, and weakness Wahn in Arabic will be placed in your hearts.
O Messenger of Allah, what does the word wahn mean?
Is dating and having relationships totally forbidden in Islam? I will start with a description of an example scenario of the way dating and relationships work in Islam, then will clarify the Islamic stance.
Hinduism and Islam, A Comparison of Beliefs and Practices by Jayaram V Islam originated in the desert sands of Arabia as a reaction against prevailing native traditions based on the revelations received by Prophet Muhammad. Hinduism originated in the temperate climate of the Indian subcontinent as a result of the synthesis of different indigenous and foreign traditions and in continuation of the prehistoric religious beliefs of lost civilizations.
Although founded by a prophet, in Islam we find echoes of ancient Judo Christian beliefs, with some deviations that are unsettling for both. If in Islam we find the vibrancy of a young and recent religion that is intent upon conquering the world in its zeal to embrace the humanity, in Hinduism we find the patience and tolerance of an ancient tradition, which is willing to let the world takes its own time to appreciate its wisdom and understand its universal appeal.
Definition and Antiquity The word “Islam” is derived from the Arabic root word “salaama,” 1 meaning peace, obedience, purity, and submission. Islam means abiding peace and unconditional obedience to the will of God and His divine law. While other religions derive their names from either a tribe Judaism , or a geographical area Hinduism , or a founder Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and Christianity , Islam derives its name from its central doctrine of peace and submission to God.
Thus the chief message of Islam is hidden in its very name. While the followers of other religions may call themselves as Christians, Jains, Buddhists etc. Islam by all means is a religion founded by a prophet.
During the first five centuries of the Christian era, barbarian invasions of the West, recurrent disasters and pestilences, and the zealous anti-Hellenism of the Christian Church led to the physical loss of much of the Greek and Roman writings that were the basis of Western civilization. However, in the seventh century the new evangelical religion of Islam was moved to preserve the classical learning still extant and later to yield it back to the European world.
Based on the role of Islam, many have characterized Arabic contributions to medicine as principally preservation and compilation.
Under Sunni and Shia Islamic marital jurisprudence, Muslim men are allowed to practice polygyny, that is, they can have more than one wife at the same practice of a woman having more than one husband is a sin in Islam.
However, because of the unwieldy complexity of the legal disputations recorded in the Talmud, more manageable codifications of talmudic laws became necessary and were indeed compiled by successive generations of rabbinical scholars. Some of these have acquired great authority and are in general use. For this reasons we shall refer for the most part to such compilations and their most reputable commentaries rather than directly to the Talmud. It is however correct to assume that the compilation referred to reproduces faithfully the meaning of the talmudic text and the additions made by later scholars on the basis of that meaning.
The earliest code of talmudic law which is still of major importance is the Misbneh Tarab written by Moses Maimonides in the late 12th century. The most authoritative code, widely used to date as a handbook, is the Shulhan ‘Arukh composed by R. Yosef Karo in the late 16th century as a popular condensation of his own much more voluminous Beys Yosef which was intended for the advanced scholar.

As Noldeke remarks, Mohammed’s acquaintance with those two dogmas was superficial; even the clauses of the Creed that referred to them were not properly known to him, and thus he felt that it was quite impossible to bring them into harmony with the simple Semitic Monotheism ; probably, too, it was this consideration alone that hindered him from embracing Christianity Sketches from Eastern History, The number of prophets sent by God is said to have been about , , and of apostles , According to the Sunni, the Prophets and Apostles were sinless and superior to the angels , and they had the power of performing miracles.
Mohammedan angelology and demonology are almost wholly based on later Jewish and early Christian traditions.
Falling in love is obviously not forbidden in Islam, but ‘dating‘ is not an Islamic term. The Prophet taught that building a family is a virtuous thing and he suggested every Muslim to get married.
Dar-al-Jil, , p. Islamic leaders go to extraordinary means to hide the Gospel of Jesus from Muslims. Just as Satan wails at a crucifix at an exorcism – the Islamic cult member normally wails at the sight of the Christian Bible. A false prophet can always be recognized, because he attacks the true prophet. A false Bible can be recognized, because it contradicts the true Bible.
Islam goes one step further. First Islam tries to gain acceptance by attesting to the truth and validity of both the Christian and Jewish holy books. But, it then clearly steps out of the light, exposing itself to its diabolical agenda, by contradicting and falsifying the facts and teachings in both these books. Also, question the “dark side” of a Religion such as Islam that requires you to only recite salah and prayers like the Namaz, in a language Arabic you do not understand.
All Muslims, Arab and non-Arab alike, are obliged to pray in Arabic. Even if you do not understand a single word. Muslims are also required to read the Qur’an in Arabic, in order to attain any graces at all from Allah. It is not necessary that the person can understand even a word of what he is reading. This is what the warning means that Jesus left us with, when he said; “insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Why is dating prohibited in Islam?
He accepted Islam in the sixth year of prophecy when he was twenty-seven years old, says adh-Dhahabi. He accepted Islam very early on, after forty other men and eleven women. Some say that it was after thirty-nine men and twenty-three women, and some say, after forty-five men and eleven women. But it was only after he accepted Islam that Islam was shown openly in Makkah and the Muslims rejoiced in him.
In Islamic law (sharia), marriage (nikāḥ نکاح) is a legal and social contract between a man and a woman. Islam is totally opposed to monasticism and celibacy. Marriage is an act of Islam and is strongly recommended; the age of marriage being whenever the individuals feel ready, financially and emotionally. Polygyny is permitted in Islam under some conditions, but polyandry is forbidden.
Muslim] who was slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once. It is a hard fight. It’s extremely difficult, day after day, when you face people and say, “If Sharia law is taken to its logic this is what things are going to look like” and you come across people who say, “You got it all wrong.
I wasn’t used to arguing with vice presidents. People who are viewed as “insulting” Islam are regularly threatened with violence, including death.

Many unmarried people these days search for love in a series of premarital relationships, which far from yielding happiness, lead to nothing but spiritual degeneration, loss of self-respect, heartache and misery.
Comment 0 Now is the time for a gallant peace gesture from Washington or for Seoul to quit the war games — twice-yearly events, dating back to , in which US and South Korean military forces deploy thousands of troops to simulate various scenarios for conflict with the North. To North Korea the games simulate invasion. War games with a specific offensive objective violate the UN Charter, that is, international law.
The US stops its perennial war games; North Korea stops testing missiles and nuclear weapons. In China this is a moderate position between those sympathetic to North Korea and those who want Beijing to take a hard line as Washington insists. Former US defense secretary William Perry, who once advocated pre-emptive strikes, agrees with a mutual freeze. And Washington has to forswear its regime-change tactics, another violation of the UN Charter. Why does Washington insist on continuing the war games?
Is it about strategy, military budgets, promoting weapon sales, face? South Korea invests heavily in the former Manchuria, and its trade with China has reached new heights. Why does Seoul go along with the games? Is Washington pressuring Seoul and the media?

Dating in Islam – Q & A. by Yasmin Mogahed Reprinted from Question: Is dating allowed in Islam so that I can get to know someone for marriage? It’s hard to get married and dating is normal in our society.
Lebanon  Some countries, including India, Iran, Iraq, Bangladesh, Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Jordan, and Kuwait, allow women to include a clause prohibiting polygyny in marriage contracts. It is difficult to enforce anti-polygyny laws and restrictions in countries with large rural populations. Furthermore, illegal polygyny often occurs in countries with poor social services as women rely on husbands to support them in these situations.
Throughout the contracted time, the woman must remain exclusively faithful to the man, and in return he must provide for her financially. Although this practice is technically legal, it is very highly disputed. This began to change when Muslim women realized they could alter their roles in society by rereading the main religious texts that dictated Muslim society and ethics. This return to reinterpretation was not a new practice — male Islamic scholars had been doing it ever since Muhammad’s death — but for women, it was unprecedented: Their new religious knowledge led them to a better understanding of their faith, as well as the ability to make educated interpretations of the texts.
